A four acre plot bordered by Burnett Creek. We have multiple creekside, primitive camping spots that are shaded by trees, and adaptable to multiple groups. Our fire pit is carved out in the center of a meadow of thriving wildflowers and makes a communal space to meet fellow campers - If you want. From the meadow to the creek, life swarms all around. Bees, Butterfly Bush, Milkweed, Otters and more enrich the environment. Potable water and a portable bathroom are on site.
The site itself is an easy distance to Downtown Knoxville and an even easier access to all that South Knox's Urban Wilderness has to offer. It uniquely offers a hint of back country camping without the 25 mile hike in, a great way to test the waters for primitive camping or a an easy stop close to the city for a seasoned traveller. 🦋 🐛 🌈 🚲 ⛺️Best suited for van, car, bike, tent, and hammock camping without the frills of a KOA. During the busy season there are a handful of bookings for this area and in the offseason usually more one at a time. Bookings are for 2 people each to keep it from feeling crowded. If you have more than 2 you will need to book multiple sites.

Places to see near Brown Bike Farms
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We stayed on lot #10! We were totally fine with having to drive over the ditch to get to it. (We drive a Subaru Outback). Just drive slow and let someone direct you through it. Also we came the day after it rained pretty good and it was muddy. As long as you know what you’re doing, all’s good! Also lot #10 is on a slant, didn’t bother us too bad.
Awesome access to knoxville biking
Super accessible to all the great biking in Knoxville. We appreciated the access to drinking water. As expected, there was some road noise. Most of the sites are close together but a few have some distance to other campers. But there were only four sites taken when we stayed there and our site was quite private. The group site looked like a nice option and was more private too. The host was super accommodating around pets!
Wonderful primitive camping spots
I said at Brown Bike Farms just one night but this great little gem was super enjoyable. Spots were fairly good sized, fire rings were plentiful, and the creek babbled nicely all night long.
Nice little spot.
Great spot to catch a nights sleep. Chose sight 1 it was dark when I got there but I could see the stream with the moon light and left out before daylight. Quiet with the occasional plane from the airport.
We enjoyed our stay at Brown Bike farm. It was a good location with easy access to Knox, and Kat was very accommodating when we realised our camper wouldn't be able to clear the ditch to reach the site we originally booked! We did think that some of the sites looked very close together and not private, but we really enjoyed our pitch at the far end. Thanks Kat!
